Nancy Gonzalez, the federal prison guard accused of becoming pregnant by New York City cop killer Ronell Wilson, has drawn criticism for poor judgment. But Gonzalez isn't the first prison guard who has become pregnant by an inmate.
Gonzalez, 29, faces 15 years in prison for allegedly having sex with Wilson, 30, of Staten Island, who was convicted of the 2003 execution-style killings of undercover detectives Rodney Andrews and James Nemorin.
According to a complaint filed by the U.S. attorney’s office in Brooklyn, Gonzalez was recorded having a telephone conversation with another inmate about how she became pregnant with Wilson’s child.
The prison guard allegedly said in the complaint that she was working in a unit where “there was an inmate there that for whatever reason, I took a chance because I was so vulnerable and wanted to be loved and now I am carrying his child.”
Gonzalez, who found out she was pregnant in June, told the inmate she “kind of got sucked into his [Wilson’s] world” and “felt like, well, why not give him a child as far as giving him some kind of hope."
Wilson, whose death penalty sentence was withdrawn for procedural reasons, allegedly wanted to get a woman pregnant before being executed.
